At age 35, Anthony S. Anselmo decided to start a band. Years later he has become the premier Progressive Rock Keyboardist in the Central Ohio region.

A prolific artist inspired of the days when synths where at the top of mix, Anthony grew up with Progressive Rock pioneers such as Genesis, Yes and Dream Theater. Combining styles ranging from 70’s to today, Anthony has become the sound of the ‘giant synth.’

His first band Picasso’s Dream became the staple of Progressive Rock shows in the Central Ohio region. Providing hypnotic rock with amazing visuals, the Picasso’s Dream shows were an experience not seen outside the realm of the big arena acts.

In 2015 Anthony released his self-titled work Uncommon Sense with The Anselmo Project working with individuals from New Zeland to Washington State. Combining hard hitting Progressive Metal with Instrumental Progressive Rock tunes Uncommon Sense broke new ground in songwriting and experimentation.

In 2015 Anthony joined Blue August, one of the most unique and amazing rock power house acts in the Columbus area. Bringing his visual style to the group, the Blue August experience had become the ‘not-to-miss’ show in Columbus!

2016 Anthony joined the Pink Floyd tribute band Still First in Space… performing to audiences through-out the Columbus region. Also, during this time Picasso’s Dream 2.0 was reformed with new members to carry the legacy forward for the next generation.

With several projects with bands and solo efforts, Anthony continues to be the most sought out Keyboardist in the Ohio region.
